After This Webinar You’ll Be Able To:

  • Understand why the LIBOR index is being phased out
  • Properly identify a replacement index for your institution’s LIBOR-based credit products
  • Establish a transition plan for your LIBOR-based credit card products
  • Appropriately update your home equity line of credit application disclosures
  • Prepare the subsequent disclosures required in connection with adjustable-rate mortgage loans

Webinar Details
The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) index is tied to several credit products, including credit cards, home equity lines of credit, and adjustable-rate mortgage loans. Due to irregularities in the behavior of the index over the past several years, the one-month, three-month, six-month, and one-year LIBOR indices will cease publication in June 2023.

Last year, the CFPB issued a final rule to help financial institutions facilitate the transition away from the LIBOR index. This webinar will explain components of that rulemaking, including factors to consider when identifying a replacement index and transition requirements for credit cards, HELOCs, and adjustable-rate mortgage loans.

Who Should Attend?
This informative session is designed for lending department leadership, loan officers, loan support staff, compliance professionals, and audit personnel.
